The company, which is part of, Africa’s largest technology service provider, offers a trio offlagship products to help businesses bolster their defences:Veritas, a risk-mitigation platform for the insurance and assurance industries;ExposeIT, a 100%ExposeIT Crime Intelligence, a powerful tool to gather enterprise-wide insights.

Filtering out fraudThe Veritas platform has been designed specifically to identify and reduce fraudulent insurance and assurance claims. It hasprevented the payout of almost R9bn in unlawful claims since it was first introduced to the SA market in 2012.

Veritas usesartificial intelligence to automate business processes and gather data insights toidentify claims that may be fraudulent — whether syndicated or opportunistic — in real time.  The risk of new claims can be determined in seconds. This allows low-risk claims to be paid out exceptionally quickly, which is a huge market advantage for XTND’s clients as doing so can drive sales and bolster customer retention.

Claims bearing a high propensity for fraud are flagged and more than 80% of these are eventually repudiated, ensuring no undue claims leakage. As a result, XTND is the only organisation in SA that guarantees a positive cost-benefit ratio to its customers — that Veritas will prevent fraud losses far exceeding the cost of XTND’s solutions and services.

Multiple data sets, legacy systems, multiple touchpoints and data quality are some of the challenges making this a non-trivial task. 

The ExposeIT Crime Intelligence platform, powered by IBM i2, is a powerful tool toget enterprise-wide insights.Fast factIn July 2021, when SA was rocked by violent unrest and looting, the ExposeIT whistleblowing app was quickly adapted and made available by EOH to concerned members of the public to allow for incidents to be safely and quickly reported. 

This platform allows for the near-instant identification of anomalies, such as syndicates targeting weaknesses in your processes, applications or controls, for instance. It can trace the flow of money and establish links between collaborators.  

But the platform hasamuch wider application: its ability to securely decipher intricate flows of information makes it perfectly suited to investigative work such as investigative journalism.And its ability to tease out relationships between multiple data sets allows it to identify risky creditors or establish co-ordinated social media accounts, for example.
